RedRaiderSports’ Matt Clare spoke with Fouonji about his commitment about building the program:
“I know the team is losing games this season, but most of them have been very close games,” Fouonji said. “The next step for them is recruiting and building the roster, and I know they already have some really good guys on the roster and have been adding even more in this 2020 recruiting class.
“I have been hearing a lot from other commitments, guys like Donovan (Smith), Tahj (Brooks) and Behren (Morton) have all reached out and let me know they wanted me to join the class. That was another positive for Texas Tech while I made my decision, because the connections with teammates and other players last longer than football.”
Well, the video is awesome and the numbers back that up, 1,425 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns and Fouonji is the type of player that can make a significant difference because he’s already heads-and-shoulders ahead of where his teammates are and opposing defenders simply can’t cover an offensive player so big. He’s got a huge catch radius and his body already looks as if it is Big 12 ready. I enjoyed watching the Lamar video a bit more than the junior video and Lamar simply didn’t have an answer to stop Fouonji and the quarterback, even if Fouonji was covered, just threw it up there and he made the catch. Oh, and the Frenship video, Frenship tried to press him and that was a huge mistake, not sure why they played him that way, but it was an immediate mismatch and the quarterback knew to just throw it up there. By the second touchdown, Frenship had backed off significantly.
